Congregational Life

The Congregational Life Committee plans all-church fellowship events throughout the year to celebrate our life together as one church family. Events include the Lenten Dinners, the Palm Sunday Breakfast, the Summer Picnic, the Fall Campfire & Chili Cook-Off, and the Christmas Pageant Dinner.

The committee serves as the liaison for fellowship groups within the congregation, including the Young Adults, Flying Solo Singles, the Roadsters, Men of Westminster, Presbyterian Women, and sponsored Scouting organizations (Boy Scouts, Cub Scouts and Venturing Crew).

Congregational Life is led by the Director of Congregational Life, Nancy Hall Berens, and the elders on the committee, Steve Lastelic and Joy Cameron. Contact the committee at [email protected].


This group, for people who enjoy being active outdoors, meets once a month in the fall and the spring to explore the outdoors, fellowship with one another, and develop a deeper relationship with God through nature. To sign up or learn more, contact Kera Winburn at [email protected].

Craft Workshop

Tuesdays, 9:30 AM – 12 PM and 7:30 PM – 10 PM in Room 104
Westminster’s Craft Workshop is celebrating thirty-nine years in March 2017. It begun in 1978 as an outreach program of Presbyterian Women. These years have seen us provide fellowship, support, and education to people: young and old, church members and community friends. Every year, we host boxwood workshops in December for some hand-on holiday decorating. If you haven’t visited us, drop by any Tuesday and check out our space! We would love to see you. All are welcome to work on Tuesdays on any project during our open workshop. For more information about the craft group, contact Madeline Ramsey at [email protected].
